      The book contains what had been considered the oldest datable piece when he wrote it, a
      Persian poem by Maliki Daylimi c. 1544, which while out of date, is still very
      representative of early marbling and how it was used by calligrpahers. The Tertib Risale-i
      Ebri, the oldest Ottoman manuscript is featured (really the only Ottoman ms that discusses
      marbling in technical detail) Then there are two images of works by the mid-late 18th c.
      Hatib Mehmed Effendi featuring very interesting and unique motifs. Most of the focus is
      speciifcally on the 19th-20th c. tradition stemming from some Nasqshibandi Sufis at the
      Ozbekler tekke, mentioned by Ingrid. There is a brief English synopsis in the back.

      Depsite some details, I'd say it's a seminal work on the subject.
